“Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow …”

We do hope that you have all managed to now get over the many colds and tummy upsets that we were all experiencing before the half term break.

This week the Nursery class will be exploring the outdoor environment and looking for the signs of Spring. So please ensure that your child has a coat with them each day, even though the sun is now beginning to shine it is still very cold and we want all of our children to experience the outdoor learning opportunities. They will be sharing the story of “Guess how much I love you in the Spring.” Along with this learning they will also be continuing to find out about people who help us. We are hoping to have some visitors pop in to class to share their professions with us including the Police, Fire Services and our very own lollipop man, Roy. Please ask the children about their day and encourage them to share the new knowledge and vocabulary that they will be learning.

In the Reception class we will be sharing the story of ‘Don’t forget the bacon.’ To support the reading of this story we will be giving the children the experience of visiting our local shop (please bring in £1.00 for them to spend during their visit.) This trip will give them the opportunity to use their road safety skills that we have been working on within class, we will ensure that all children have a partner to walk with and they will be going in very small groups with two adults. In the classroom we will be setting up a role play shop. While you out and about in the local area please encourage your child to look at the environmental print, what do they recognise? McDonalds, Tesco, Co-op etc. Before going shopping allow them to have a go at writing a shopping list and as you venture around the shop they can tick the items off. This will really support them understanding that writing is for a purpose.

If you do have any questions I, (Mrs Noonan) am always available and will endeavour to answer you, please just catch up with me in the morning, afternoon or telephone the school.

“This term has flown by …”

So last week our learning about transport continued and the children were all given the chance to take part in the hands on experience at the RAF museum.  Thank you to all the parent’s who joined us to support the children’s trip.  We were extremely lucky to have so many parents interested in joining us and I must say a big ‘thank you to Mount Grace School for lending us their mini-bus.’  The parents all travelled in style with Mr Hawes at the helm.  

The teaching staff and children boarded the double decker bus.  For some children this was their first experience of travelling up-stairs on a double decker and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

 

Obviously one of the most important parts of their day was lunch time.  During this time all the children sat together and were extremely well behaved ensuring that all their rubbish was put into the bin.

Unfortunately, two parts of the RAF museum were closed for refurbishment, as they are busy getting it ready for the Centenary so if you do get the chance to go and visit from June onwards please do try and pop along for a visit.  However, when talking with the children they all had a great time and appeared to learn a lot from the hands-on experience.  For many it was their first school trip and it was a pleasure to observe their faces when they first saw the airplanes and were able to walk under the wings and stand next to them and just see their size.

Our learning around transport and WW1 will continue this week.  We will also be discussing people who help us so please do ask your children what they have been learning about at school, as each day we will discuss different professions and how they help us.  

Please remember that on Friday it is our dress up day for the WW1 CENTENARY.  If you need any support with ideas please speak to a member of the EYFS team who will be happy to help.  

If you do have any questions I, (Mrs Noonan) am always available and will endeavour to answer you, please just catch up with me in the morning, afternoon or telephone the school.

 

“This week we jetting off on an adventure to the RAF Hendon museum …”

So this week our learning about transport continues and the children will be having a hands on experience by visiting the RAF museum.  Thank you to all the parent’s who have paid to join us on our visit.  It was on a first come, first served because we had so many of you interested in joining us.  If you did miss this opportunity please do not worry as there will be more trips to support the children’s learning coming up – we will keep you posted.

On Thursday can you send your child to school in their school uniform.  They will require a packed lunch.  Please make sure this as disposable as possible so that the children do not have to carry a bulky packed lunch box around all day as unfortunately there is no where to leave our personal belongings.  I would suggest that you put your child’s lunch in a named plastic bag with disposable drink cartons and plastic spoons (if needed) for yoghurts etc.  This way following our lunch break they will not have anything to carry and can enjoy the rest of the visit ‘hands free’.

Recently we have had many children falling ill with this nasty ‘bug’ that is going around.  We are keeping a close eye on all of the children as we do realise that they can become poorly very quickly.  Please do send your child in, if possible and if when they are in our care they become ill we will call you to collect them, or give them a safe space to sleep if you are unable to come until later on in the day.  

If you do have any questions I, (Mrs Noonan) am always available and will endeavor to answer you, please just catch up with me in the morning, afternoon or telephone the school.

“We’re back and ready to learn …”

It was a pleasure seeing all the children following the Christmas break.  They have all settled back in to the class routines and have enjoyed catching up with their friends.   

The learning about Winter will continue in the Nursery this week, they will be focusing on the story of ‘Guess how much I love you’, as last week they shared the book ‘Harry and the Snow King.’  They will be encouraged to take part in using different collage pieces to make a winter scene while discussing how to keep themselves warm during this season.

In the Reception classes we will be sharing the story of ‘Mr Gumpy’s outing.’  We will explore sinking and floating and be discussing different modes of transport.  Our phonics learning will be around the letters, b and f.  Please support your child’s understanding by asking them to find you objects beginning with these sounds.  For number we will be focusing on adding objects and looking at both the + and = maths symbols.

 

If you do have any questions I, (Mrs Noonan) am always available and will endeavor to answer you, please just catch up with me in the morning, afternoon or telephone the school.

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow…

Happy New Year to you all and let’s hope that 2018 is a happy and healthy one.

We are all looking forward to seeing the children tomorrow and can not wait to hear about the fun and adventures they have had during the festive period.

In the Nursery the children are going to be sharing the story of “Guess how much I love you?”  While in the Reception classes we will focusing our learning around the story of “The Stick Man.”

The children are going to find it hard to settle back into a routine (and so are all the adults working with them,) so please try and ensure that you keep to a routine and schedule so that they are less tired.

See you all in the morning! x
